Join the Austin Marathon volunteer team! Your volunteer time benefits the Austin Marathon runners, walkers, guests and staff by providing help in a variety of areas, including start & finish line, packet pick-up, information and water distribution. And just as importantly, volunteers provide the energy and enthusiasm to help encourage our runners to the finish line!

Our volunteer shifts will take place at the Expo (Friday 02/14 and Saturday 02/15) and on Race Day (Sunday 02/16/2020). Volunteers will receive an official volunteer t-shirt, refreshments during the shift and a huge thank you from the race team!

By helping to make the Austin Marathon a successful community event, our full team of volunteers, staff and supporters also help create economic opportunities for the City of Austin and Central Texas by way of the number of runners and guests visiting Austin for the race.
